WATCH: Mun2 Doc ‘Black and Latino’ Explores Race and Ethnicity

Released in 2012, mun2’s original documentary Black and Latino discusses the challenges in identifying as Afro-Latino. Tapping well-known Afro-Latinas such as actresses Gina Torres and Tatyana Ali, singer/actress-turned-entrepreneur Christina Milian, and media maven Soledad O’Brien, the web doc takes a closer look at what it means to be both Black and Latino in America—and told by some of America’s most prominent Afro-Latino celebs.

“When I became an actress, I quickly realized that the world liked their Latinas to look Italian, not like me,” said Torres, who is best known for her role on Fox’s sci-fi cult fave, Firefly. “And so I wasn’t going up for Latina parts, I was going up for African-American parts.”

Take a look at “Black and Latino” below:
